Failed Model for an Enclosed System

In the slide series “Failed Model for an Enclosed System” (2006) Margreiter investigates the experiment carried out in the USA during the early 1990s on an artificial biosphere – a failed attempt to survive outside of our own atmosphere. Celebrated by the media, it in fact collapsed into its own artificiality. Under a glas cover the projector itself becomes the observing object, opening up an illusory space and capturing what it projects as a tiny reproduction on the pane.
